Prerequisiti per l’ uso

For application of TSE considerable qualifications in the field of wood anatomy, tree statics and measuring technology are required. Such qualifications can only be obtained from the corresponding theory and practice courses at the Nürnberger Schule.

Experts and practitioners who want to use TSE for creation of reports on stability and safety against fracture of trees must have successfully completed the required trainings and courses and thus be a qualified expert member of the Independent Tree Expert Group (ITEG). For all other persons, use of the TSE calculation programme is only permitted for practicing purposes.

Moreover, successful application of TSE requires correct use of suitable measuring instruments. Application of measuring instruments by Rinntech in connection with TSE as application software has been multiply tried and tested in practice. The Dynatim measuring equipment, that was specially developed by Rinntech upon request of the expert office Siegert, together with the software forms an interlocked system for safety evaluation.

Within the scope of calculation of the wind loads to be expected, application of a separate computer programme for calculation of the tree top surface is required (ArWiLo by RinnTech).
